Dorothy Deyrup (1908-1961)

Dorothy Deyrup was a well taught artist, attending the Art Students League and the Grand Central Art School. While she is well known for social realism, Deyrup’s work was influenced by her family and home in Nyack. The mediums she used most were oil, watercolor, and woodcut. Her work has been featured in a variety of exhibitions in New York City and the state, including the New School, which her father had founded and where she completed some of her studies.
